Specialization, customer care, continuous innovation, custom technology and extensive knowledge of international markets are just some of the features that have enabled PND srl to be among the leading companies in the world in the construction and sale of fruit processing machinery.
This success is easy to see in the numbers racked up by the strawberry de-calyx machine (Mod. DF12 – DF24). This machine, only 18 months after its launch, is already present with 35 units on four continents.
Companies based in the United States, Mexico, Spain, South Korea and Egypt have chosen the features of the PND strawberry destalking machine.
Indeed, this machine makes it possible to work with considerable fruit volumes with great quality, reducing waste to a minimum.
Other de-calyx machines usually create product waste of about 30%. With the PND de-calyx machine, however, this waste is reduced to only 10-12%. This means a large amount of product is recovered, especially if one takes into account the fact that the models built and marketed by PND can respectively process 300 strawberries per minute (Mod. DF12) and 600 strawberries per minute (Mod. DF24).
Another feature that makes the PND strawberry de-calyx machine a winner is its ability to work with all the various sizes of strawberry without needing to be pre-calibrated. This feature makes it particularly popular in Mexico or wherever it is necessary to switch quickly from the field to processing.
Avoiding any settings, the PND strawberry de-calyx machine is able to process a wide range of product with a diameter ranging between 18 and 55 millimetres, a range that, in practice, includes all types of strawberries.
It is a truly global machine, as PND srl is also truly global, being based in Italy, but with representative offices located in several different countries.
A team consisting of 30 people, including administrative and sales staff, technicians and engineers, based at its headquarters in Scafati, in the province of Salerno, in the south of Italy, works alongside agents and technical offices all around the world.
Indeed, the human element is one of the main resource of a company with mechanical and technical strengths such as these.
Despite the widespread presence of PND representatives on the various continents, when it comes to installing a new machine, there is always an expert who travels from the parent company and follows the process through to completion.
This assumption of responsibility is a guarantee for the customer, which knows from the very first moment that it is going to be accompanied constantly from the design phase to the commissioning of the system.
This constant attention to the needs of its customers is a winning strategy that allows continuous updating in the field and a swift response to customer needs means that customised production lines can be offered to them.
The opportunity to deal constantly with customers all around the world offers the technicians from PND the opportunity to tackle new challenges and properly understand the needs of their customers.
Those who choose one of the 15 semi-automatic, manual or automatic machines in the PND catalogue, are choosing a standard machine that can be tailored to their needs.
Thanks to the competence and availability of PND technicians it is possible to carry out mechanical applications to the machinery, tailoring the type of processing to their needs.
One example of versatility of the machinery manufactured by PND is highlighted by the changes that have allowed us to adapt our apple peeling machine to the needs of South Korean companies engaged in the processing of Asian pears. This fruit has the consistency of a pear, the smooth shape of an apple and the diameter of a baby melon. This challenge was brilliantly resolved by PND.
Relying on PND means having personalised assistance anywhere with skilled technicians able to speak different languages and enjoying the on-site support of offices in Europe, USA, Canada, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Peru, South Korea, Egypt, Tanzania, Australia, China, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Qatar.
Pears, apples, kiwi fruit, oranges, grapefruits, lemons, pineapple, lemons, mangoes, strawberries and peaches are the varieties of fruit handled, with all their possible variants, in order to meet the needs of companies engaged in the processing of fruits in fresh cut, canning industry, and the dried and frozen sectors.
Food industry has always had a need for innovation and has different requirements and peculiarities depending on the different target markets.
For example, in the United States and Europe, the fresh cut is one of the main production sectors, unlike in Turkey, where the main operations are focused on dehydrated or dried products.
PND’s main ability is always to provide successful solutions to make processing easy and economically advantageous, complementing the processing lines, for example, with a freezing tunnel or drying ovens.
